Limo After a Wreck on an Illinois Road

The answer to your question depends on who caused the limo accident and your resulting injuries. As a limo passenger, you may not immediately know who caused the crash. You were likely riding in the back of the vehicle with friends, relatives, or coworkers. It was not your job to pay attention to the road or to prevent a crash, but now it is your job to find out who did cause the accident.

A Limo Accident Investigation Will Be Necessary

Before you can find out who to sue, you need to evidence about what caused your accident. This evidence could include things like:

  • Photographs of the accident
  • Cell phone records of all drivers
  • Blood alcohol test results
  • Information about the vehicle itself and the maintenance of the vehicle
  • Qualifications and training of the limo driver
  • Police report
  • Answers to questions, under oath, by all drivers involved in the crash
  • Witness statements
  • Video footage, if available
  • Other evidence

A personal injury lawyer can gather and analyze the evidence for you so that you can make sure that your recovery is protected.

Then Your Attorney Can Seek Damages From the Right Parties

Depending on the outcome of the investigation, your attorney may find that the limo company, the limo driver, or another driver was legally responsible for the accident and your injuries. Once the right parties have been identified, then your lawyer can begin settlement negotiations and can file a lawsuit in court to protect your rights.

The person or company who caused the accident may be responsible for paying for your past and future medical costs, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses, physical pain, and emotional suffering. These damages can be significant. Make sure the right party pays for your damages by contacting our experienced personal injury lawyers today.
